    Great website; it won't load saying I need flash 8 (I have flash 9), so here's a link to the story http://news.zdnet.co.uk/emergingtech...9287279,00.htm in case anyone else is in the same boat.

    I have to say, if Microsoft produce a stable product from this then they will have been innovative here!

    Anyone seen the movie 'The Island' and think of the desk the Dr on that has?

    You might not have flash9 - there are problems with the upgrade and sometimes even though 9 appears to have installed cleanly it hasn't. There is a flash removal tool on the Adobe web site - try removing flash and then reinstalling it.

    If you find out how to do this cleanly on a large number of machines, please can you let me know - we need to do it here :-) (It's worked fine on the student computers - probably because they are all the same image - but won't work on our staff computers!)

    Microsoft. Innovative? I guess not on this occasion. Again.

    I remember seeing these kinds of demos two years ago by HP and others. It's actually gimmiky. I mean- what is the real application here? I rather think it has more to do with Microsoft's push into the new credit card territory than it does innovation in computing.

    Time will tell.

    Huh? MS started this project in 2001... That was from a couple of years ago.

    The real use here is getting rid of the methods of interfacing with computers that we currently have and replacing them with something more fluid and 'real world'.
